review paper


Every year, the rose oil industry generates large amounts of wastes due to the low content of essential oil in the fresh rose petals. Most of the distilleries simply discard the waste biomass which could lead to ecological problems in the nearby locations. Various methods for rose waste utilization have been successfully developed during the past years for the purpose of solving this problem. The aim of the present review is to summarize the possible approaches to the valorization of rose waste biomass, and to outline future trends. Apart from the common methods of disposal, i.e. composting, use for animal forage or simply discarding the wastes, there are several other promising and widely investigated strategies for utilization: aroma substance extraction, recovery of valuable biologically active substances and their application to food industry or medicine, and studies focused on increasing the essential oil yield. Novel approaches include the extraction of polysaccharides from the biomass and introduction of integrated methods for more complete valorization of the rose waste biomass. Nevertheless, most of the methods for rose waste valorization still remain on laboratory scale. This review shows that the potential of the rose oil industry wastes is still underexplored and further studies in this direction are needed.
